    Hey BLAZER and blwjr, just take your time on the road and yard tests. I went to IITR in Redmond and was intimidated by the 53' trlrs at May. We only used pup trlrs at school. Don't get overstressed about using different equipment. The mechanics are the same. Square off your corners and keep your engine rpm's low. Check your mirrors alot. Read and obey all road signs. The road test goes quite quick. It's not that much different then your CDL test. The testers want to see that you don't lose your composure. Stay calm, think it out. Best wishes to you folks.
     
    BlazerBrad and blwjr Thank this.

    Training is going great didn't get to leave when you did tho trainer had to be in Brooks for a trainers meeting on that Monday so he went home and I stayed on the truck at Brooks. We're in New York we drop off tmrw, my trainer has home time at the end of the month so hopefully I can solo out then if not I gotta wait till he comes back after 4 days off.

    My advice to all may newbies is look for another job this company is a freakin joke. They do not give a rats ### about anything except the load you are under. Every thing goes smooth in training but when you go solo all the sudden you notice no more long trips dispatch mistakes on 3 of 5 loads your truck is going to be a pile of #### and they will not fix anything while u are under dispatch. Hometime sucks no dedicated routes but they are needed badly.
